LONDON: India's Yuvraj Singh and England's Kevin Pietersen are poised to write a new chapter in their fierce on-field rivalry Sunday with a place in the World Twenty20 semi-finals at stake.

The two, big personalities have exchanged a series of verbal barbs with Pietersen describing Yuvraj as a "pie-chucker" and his bowling as "filth" during last year's Test and ODI series.

Big-hitting Yuvraj hit back by claiming that his ability to dismiss Pietersen five times meant he was a "useless batsman."

"If I get the chance I would love to bowl to him again and I am sure he would love to call me a pie-chucker again," said Yuvraj ahead of Sunday's match at Lord's.

It's a game both teams need to win after opening Super Eights defeats to South Africa and West Indies respectively.

"He's a great batsman and we always look forward to playing against each other and we're great friends off the field. We spur each other on, we both love doing that."

Yuvraj has enjoyed facing England.

He scored two centuries in last November's one-day series and famously smashed six sixes in an over off Stuart Broad at the last World Twenty20 in South Africa in 2007.
